The cubes were placed around the world and highlighted the staggering biodiversity revealed by studying one cubic foot at a time. Almost every cubic foot sampled yielded more than a hundred different species. Because of the standard sampling size, biocubes can be used to show interesting differences among living communities from different continents, different habitats, and .

The Bio-Cube tool helps children condense what they want to say about themselves. The cube activity also offers a chance for self-discovery, allowing children to see how complex they are.

This activity was modified from the ReadWriteThink lesson plan “.”Biocubes aren’t just for science class! As part of the marine science summer camp program we offer at the in Fort Pierce, Fla., teens study biodiversity using the Biocube project. We strive to have students outside exploring different ecosystems as much as possible. The Biocube project provides a way to really focus in on a specific area and uncover the complexities within ecosystems that could otherwise be missed, all while using inexpensive and accessible materials.
